Take turns creating (hopefully) delicious concoctions from your kitchen. Assign family or group members to be chefs or judges and establish a scoring criteria. Then, set the timer and let the chefs do their thing. Once the time is up, have the chefs name their creation and present it to the judges, who will then taste it and give it a score. The person with the highest score wins!
